Double Trouble Challenge #114 "YouNique Technique"

This week at Double Trouble, Trouble Maker is asking us to create a card that features an unique background.  I SO LOVE THIS CHALLENGE.  We can use any technique we love...dry embossing, inked, stenciled... whatever.  I combined two of my favorite techniques: distressing and embossing. Do you have Distress colors that you use less frequently than other colors?  I do.  I decided to distress Forest Moss, Mowed Lawn and Bundled Sage on my background and then dry emboss with a gorgeous embossing folder.  This is a sympathy card for a dear friend.... I prefer Thinking of You over With Sympathy for friends because I can customize the inside.

These greens are so lovely paired with the gold sentiment, fab blending and embossing on your background.

Elizabeth, you've created a beautiful sympathy card. I love all the shades of green distress ink you've used, and the embossing makes for such a lovely background! Thank you for sharing your car and talents with us at Double Trouble for our "YouNique Background" challenge! Love your Solstice quote, too! -Donna
